Not sure what to write really....it's Karena's birthday.
Getting out of bed was a struggle.
Tonight we're going out for dinner. I know Karena would have wanted us to enjoy ourselves so I will go through the motions and try to muster up some enthusiasm...but the blanket-like weight of heaviness that hangs from my heart sometimes feels totally overwhelming; today is one of those days.
A good friend reminded me this morning of Rom 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
Gonna try to cling onto Jesus today as best as I can....in memory of my wife, I will start with cappuccino....
